Here are new additions to version 6.10 that weren't in previous versions:
1. True positions:真实的行星位置？这个好像有用，哪些修正位置的是不是通过这个就可以做到？ Astrolog supports true planetary positions, which means where planets actually are in space. Normally Astrolog shows apparent positions, which is where planets appear in the sky, or the true positions adjusted by the travel time of the speed of light. Most astrologers and astrology software work with apparent positions (although there’s no definitive proof that astrological influences travel at the speed of light). True positions will be up to half an arc-minute ahead of apparent positions, e.g. light from the Sun takes about 8 minutes to reach Earth, so the Sun has moved forward another 8 clock minutes through the zodiac. True positions can be turned on with the new -YT command switch. In the Windows version in the Calculation Settings dialog there’s a new “Use True Positions” checkbox. For the -S orbit chart, in which one is looking down at the solar system as a whole, it’s recommended to have true positions on (and topocentric positions off).
2. Topocentric positions:测地面位置？好高深 Astrolog supports topocentric positions, which means positions relative to one’s location on the surface of the Earth. Normally Astrolog shows positions relative to the center of the Earth. Most astrologers and astrology software treat the Earth as a single point (although there’s no definitive proof that astrological influences affect everybody on all parts of the Earth equally). Because topocentric is relative to location on Earth, one’s elevation above sea level influences positions, and needs to be set separately (with the -zv switch below). Positions with this setting may be different by more than half a degree, with the maximum change being the Moon (because it’s closest to the Earth) and when planets are near the horizon, because in those cases parallax has the biggest opportunity to alter positioning. Topocentric positions can be turned on with the new -YV command switch. In the Windows version in the Calculation Settings dialog there’s a new “Use Topocentric Positions” checkbox. Topocentric positions require Swiss Ephemeris to be active (which it is by default) in order to work, and also for the chart to be geocentric. For the -Z local horizon chart, in which one is looking at light from the sky from their local position on Earth, it’s recommended to have topocentric positions on (and true positions off).
3. Krusinski houses: 新的宫位系统Astrolog supports the Krusinski system of house division. Krusinski houses can be selected by passing 10 (or strings like “krusinski”) to the -c house system selection switch. In the Windows version there’s a new “Setting / House System / Krusinski” menu command. Krusinski houses require Swiss Ephemeris to be active (which it is by default) in order to work.
4. Sinusoidal ratio houses: Astrolog supports the new “Pullen (Sinusoidal Ratio)” house system. Sinusoidal Ratio houses can be selected by passing 12 (or strings like “pullen” or “ratio”) to the -c house system selection switch. In the Windows version there’s a new “Setting / House System / Pullen (S-Ratio)” menu command. For more information about sinusoidal house systems, and why they can be considered the “best looking” house systems for wheel charts, see http://www.astrolog.org/astrolog/astsine.htm
5. Custom planets: Astrolog supports custom planets beyond the set of objects it normally works with. The new -Ye switch customizes planet positions. It takes two parameters: One for the object to replace, and another for the object to replace it with. The source object must be one of the objects in the Uranian hypothetical object category (Vulcan or one of the eight Uranians). The destination object is defined by an index in the “seorbel.txt” text file in the Astrolog install directory. For example, “-Ye Cup 9” will replace Cupido with Isis-Transpluto, and “-Ye Had 18” will replace Hades with Proserpina. The name and glyphs in the program won’t change, but the positions will reflect the new object. The -Ye switch requires Swiss Ephemeris to be active (which it is by default) in order to work.
6. All stars field: In the Windows version, the More Object Settings dialog has three new entries labeled "All Stars". They allow one to set the maximum orb, the addition to orbs, and the influence for all fixed stars. These values when set for stars will apply to all stars equally.
7. Graphics text scale: The size for text within graphics charts (such as the text in the wheel chart sidebar, and the text at the bottom of the screen in other charts) can be changed with the new -XS switch. On high resolution monitors with many pixels, the default text size may be small enough to be hard to read. In the Windows version in the Graphics Settings dialog, there’s a new “Text Scale” field to set this. (Also added to the Graphics Setting dialog is a field for the existing -Xs switch “Character Scale” setting.) An entry for this setting also now exists in the astrolog.as default settings file.
8. Default name and location: The default name and location strings used for charts (most commonly for “now” charts) may be specified with the new -zj switch. In the Windows version in the Default Chart Info dialog, there are two new fields for “Name” and “Location”. An entry for these settings also now exists in the default astrolog.as default settings file.
9. Default elevation: The default elevation used in topocentric charts may be specified with the new -zv switch. In the Windows version in the Default Chart Info dialog, there’s a new “Elevation” field. An entry for this setting also now exists in the astrolog.as default settings file. Elevation above sea level can be expressed in meters (with an “m” suffix) or feet (“ft” suffix). Note that this is a global setting, so affects all charts. To fully support topocentric astrology, the standard interface for specifying time and location should also ask for elevation above sea level (although that piece of information would of course be unnecessary for standard non-topocentric charts).
10. Distance units: When Astrolog displays distances, it’s normally in imperial units (feet or miles). The new -Yv switch will instead display distances in metric units (meters or kilometers). In the Windows version in the Obscure Settings dialog, there’s a new “Display Lengths in Metric Instead Of Imperial Format” checkbox. An entry for this setting also now exists in the default astrolog.as default settings file.
Here's a summary of the 7 new command switches in Astrolog 6.10 that weren't in previous versions:
-zv <elev>: Change the default elevation above sea level.
-zj <name> <place>: Change the default name and place strings.
-XS <100,200,300,400>: Change size of graphics chart text by %.
-YT: Compute true positions in space instead of apparent in sky.
-YV: Compute topocentric positions instead of from center of body.
-Yv: Display distance in metric instead of imperial units.
-Ye <obj> <index>: Change orbit of Uranian to seorbel.txt object.
